Merrick & Company Awarded Aerial Photography and LiDAR Contract by REIS Inc. in Sullivan County, New York
According to Dave Washburn, Presidet, REIS, Inc, “I chose Merrick because of their technical LiDAR capabilities and their history of successful projects in our region.” Washburn continues, “The LiDAR data will be usable for the engineering stage of development and will significantly reduce cost and time spent in the field running line transects in the thick hemlock and pine canopy.”
Sullivan County is located 60 miles north of New York City and is growing due to demand for affordable housing within commuting distance to the City. Anticipating continued growth, REIS is assembling a consortium of survey companies that will participate in the ownership of the geospatial data. In addition to FEMA’s scheduled flood mapping update in 2008, the data will be available for use by developers and government entities to manage the County’s growth.
